Hi, I have a survey with a lot of codes. When I export it to a .csv file I want to export not only the codes but the labels. Is it possible? Thanks

Hi Migonser,

If you use the export button in the code list editor this should alreadt create a CSV file with the values, labels and descriptions of the codes...

See the result of exporting the list :

After clicking the export button the CSV generated contaisn all of the data *with labels and descriptions for english and spanish, even if the spanish has not been translated yet)!

Example :

"41","Ba","Ba","Boreal coniferous forest","Boreal coniferous forest"
"43","BM","BM","Boreal mountain system","Boreal mountain system"
"42","Bb","Bb","Boreal tundra woodland","Boreal tundra woodland"

Hi, That's an option, but what we need is the possibility to include a column in the CSV data export showing the label of every Code list value. Thanks,

I misunderstood the issue. We will add this feature in the coming version of Collect Earth!

Also in Collect 3.11.9 there is the possibility to export data to CSV including a column with the code list item label, you just have to open the Additional options box and check the relative option for that (the last one in the list).

Dear Migonser,

This feature has been added to Collect Earth (version 1.4.5).

You will need to update your Collect Earth by going to the main menu Help->Check for updates of Collect Earth

In this new version, when you choose if you want labels or not after you click on the CSV export!

Thank you for the feature request and let us know if there are other features you are missing!
